E cigs, or electronic cigarettes have come on the scene as a new diversion, similar to regular cigarettes, but not harmful. These devices are constructed in varying shapes and colors, yet the earlier models, and some current models are in the form of a cigarette. Contained within the device is a glycol liquid that is heated and atomized into a vapor. The vapor acts like, and looks like cigarette smoke, and has become a tidal wave of a new fad.
The vapor, being harmless, is a welcome substitute for tobacco smoke, which has been proven to contain killers such as arsenic, cyanide and 200 other chemicals that have been proven to be cancer causing. Over 165,000 people die of lung cancer each year and it is documented that most of these deaths were attributed to smoking tobacco.
Many people have used e cigs as a means of stopping smoking, because they can put nicotine into the e-liquid at varying strengths, and taper it down to nothing. Even if a smoker left the nicotine at a high level, at least that individual is not inhaling the deadly tobacco smoke.
Enticing flavors of choice can also be added to the liquid, making this new fad a delicious one, and one that that will no doubt continue.
